He was the author of several historical writings, of which the best known are Don Carlos et Philippe II (1863 Bruxelles), Études et notices historiques concernant l'histoire des Pays-Bas (1863), Histoire de la Belgique au commencement du XIXème siècle (1880), Histoire politique et diplomatique de P. P. Rubens (1877), all published at Brussels.

His chief editorial works are the Actes des États généraux des Pays-Bas 1576-1585 (Brussels, 1861-1866), Collection de documents inédits concernant l'histoire de la Belgique (Brussels, 1833 1835), and the Relations des ambassadeurs vénitiens sur Charles V et Philippe II (Brussels, 1855).
